Eco Friendly Gold

I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. With three boys and a dog, the risk of having my favorite ring end up as a passenger on a Tonka truck isn’t worth it.  The possibility of having my earring ripped from my ear lobe during an intense tackle football game doesn’t excite me.

Not wearing jewelry doesn’t mean that I don’t like it. I do. I have my fair share of funky rings, quirky necklaces and dazzling earrings that I pull out on those days my Lululemon pants need a break and I need to put on ‘real’ clothes.

There’s a lot of junky, cheap metal jewelry out there. Many of the brands made in China and India have been found to have the heavy metal cadmium, a known carcinogen, in them. Just recently, many of the most popular retailers stopped selling jewelry that contains more than trace levels of cadmium. To avoid cadmium it’s best to avoid any cheap metal or plastic costume jewelry and go for the good stuff.

The good stuff

Amara Gold eco packagingAmara Gold is a company that makes gorgeous, elegant and sometimes funky gold jewelry. This is the good stuff. Amara Gold is a unique company, creating its jewelry from 100 percent repurposed gold and silver.  Each piece of jewelry comes with a certificate of authenticity that it is made from 100% recycled gold or silver.

The company’s mission is to preserve precious gold and silver that is already in circulation.

Amara Gold prides itself on being a socially responsible and eco-friendly brand of fine jewelry. They use socially responsible labor practices and eco-friendly packaging materials.

The company says:

Amara Gold eco earringWe avoid the byproducts of traditional mining. Environmental and energy costs to produce Amara Gold and Silver fine jewelry are dramatically less since each piece in our exclusive collection is crafted without disturbing a single cubic meter of earth.
